Hitchens hits it outta the park re McCain/Palin

leave a comment »

In his latest Slate post, Christopher Hitchens says in his usual pungent way what he likes least about la Palin and her brand of politics:

This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated and the cultured. And those who prate of spiritual warfare and demons are not just “people of faith” but theocratic bullies. On Nov. 4, anyone who cares for the Constitution has a clear duty to repudiate this wickedness and stupidity.

He’s not one for the PC soft-pedal. But I like the pungency!
